A duress code will send Guardian a silent alert that help is needed. Often referred to as a hold up code, this four-digit code number will operate your system exactly like your regular Master Panel Code. However, the system sends a duress signal to our monitoring center. We will treat this signal like an emergency signal and notify authorities that help is needed.
Since this code is often used when someone is being forced to silence the alarm in a hold up or home invasion, our monitoring center will not call before sending the authorities.
Not sure what your duress code is? If you subscribe to our smart home security services, codes can be changed and managed by logging into MyGuardianHome.com.
If you do not have smart home security, you can review information on how to update your duress code in your user manual here.

Master Control – The user will have all the permissions of the primary account login, including the ability to manage website logins and change profile information such as the primary email address and phone number for the account. Master Control logins will not receive certain types of account notifications that go only to the primary login.
Full Control – The user can control the system and its functions as the master user would. They will not have the ability to manage website logins, and they will not receive certain types of account notifications that go only to the primary login.
Read Only – The user can see most of the website pages and settings for the account, including the User Codes and Live/Saved Video pages, but will not be able to make any changes to account settings, arming state, device status or view saved video. Read Only users can’t see the Manage Logins page.
Custom Permissions – This option lets you customize a user’s login so they can control, view only, or not see items at all. When this option is checked, use the radio buttons below to control what the user can see, and what they can control. You can use the drop-down options to select Full Control or Read Only.

Your local municipality may require you to obtain a permit for your security system. To find out if a permit is required in your area, contact your local police, sheriff, or fire department using their non-emergency telephone number, or look up the local ordinance online.
If a permit is required, follow the necessary steps to obtain the permit. Once you have it, provide the permit number to Guardian by calling 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328).
Please note your permit may have an expiration date and may need to be renewed with your local municipality on a regular basis. Failure to obtain and/or renew your permit may result in municipal fines, refusal by the authorities to respond to an alarm activation, or the inability of our monitoring center to notify the authorities when an alarm activates.
It is important to know and keep track of your Guardian Protection passwords and codes. This information is vital to your protection and management of your account.
Verbal Master Alarm Password
Single word used to verify your identity when an alarm is triggered or when speaking to Guardian Protection. This password gives you authority to make changes on your account. You won’t want to share this password with many people.
Verbal Limited Level Password
When you are giving access to your home or business to someone you may want to assign a limited password used to verify their identity when an alarm is triggered or when speaking to Guardian Protection, but this password has limited authority and cannot authorize changes on your account.
Master Panel Code
Numeric code used to arm and disarm your security system at your panel. This code is also used to add, remove, or change codes in your panel.
Numeric code that will disarm your security system at your panel, but silently notifies Guardian of an emergency.
Limited Level Code
To give someone temporary access to your home or business, you can assign them a limited level code that can only be used for a specific amount of time. You can add a limited code at your keypad or by calling us at 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328).
Once your security system is installed and activated, it will be in “orientation” mode for the first 7 days. This gives you some time to get comfortable using your new system without worrying about false alarms and potential fines.
During this time, Guardian will only call your primary phone number when your system sends a burglary, medical, duress, keypad fire, or panic alarm signal. We will only notify emergency responders if you request it.
If you have a monitored smoke or carbon monoxide detector, those alarm signals will always be treated normally. We’ll always alert emergency responders when we receive this type of signal from your system, regardless of where you are in the orientation period. Already got the hang of it? Unless doing so violates a local municipal ordinance, we’re happy to turn this feature off for you early. Just give us a call at 1.800.PROTECT (1.800.776.8328).
